Event description

Description

Alison Inman, social housing and women's rights activist, co-founder of SHOUT - Social Housing Under Threat and current president of the Chartered Institute of Housing will talk on the impact of housing policy on women through her experience of working in and campaigning for social housing and housing justice.

This is the inaugural series of talks, debates and screenings organised by residents of the Boundary Estate, E2, to raise funds for St. Hilda's East, our local community centre. Registration is free, but for those who are able to you can make donations at the door. Light refreshments will be available.

Each series will focus on different subjects of concern to local residents and those who live beyond the Boundary - subjects that can unite us or divide us, but with friendly discussion and debate we might change our viewpoints or at least understand each other a little better.

We are really pleased that we have a range of incredible people for our inaugural series -

9 May - Aditya Chakrabortty, Senior Economics Commentator of the Guardian of in conversation about austerity, community and gentrification with long-time Boundary resident Philip Green.

16th May - Focus E15 Campaign, who will talk about their campaign to draw attention to the process of social cleansing, with low income people being forced to the fringes of London and beyond by soaring rents, benefit cuts, and a shortage of social housing.

23 May - 'Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle', a documentary about people who know housing is not an expensive luxury but a fundamental human right. Followed by Q&A with director Paul Sng.

30 May - Alison Inman, social housing and women's rights activist, co-founder of SHOUT - Social Housing Under Threat and current president of the Chartered Institute of Housing will talk on the impact of housing policy on women through her experience of working in and campaigning for social housing and housing justice.
